We have extensive experience in the evaluation and the determination of the root causes and mechanisms of failure of knives, blades, cutlery, flatware, kitchen gadgets, tools and cookware.

Corrosion / Rust Due to Dishwashing
Weld, Solder and Brazing Related Failures
Fracture of  Metallic and Plastic Products
Inadequate and Unsafe Design and Manufacture
Premature Loss of Sharpness and Cutting Ability
Unexpected Staining, Rusting and Tarnishing
Environmental Corrosion and Stress Cracking
Loss of Lustre, Polish and Discoloration
Product Contamination from Packaging Materials

In addition, we offer advice and consultancy to product designers, specifiers and manufacturers in failure prevention.
